Erin Brockovich (2000)


An unemployed single mother becomes a legal assistant and almost single-handedly brings down a California power company accused of polluting a city’s water supply. (IMDb)
A satisfying (the glass of water scene!) and inspirational underdog legal tale smartly built upon an endearing protagonist set-up to begin the film, and blended with just the right amount of continuing tumultuous character/family drama to keep it grounded throughout. Roberts’ sharp-tongued and self-sufficient Erin and Finney’s weary and wary Ed have great chemistry and add just the right amount of charming humour (“They’re called boobs, Ed”) on top of the engaging investigation plot line.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
